Setup Printable Permit Template
Before you can allow your users to print from home you must setup the correct messaging under System Config → System Messaging, follow the instructions below on how to set this up
Once you are on the Manage System Messaging page make sure that you click the Messages tab before clicking Create Page/Message, if you forget to do this you will automatically be prompted to create a Page instead of a Message.
You will know if you are creating a message by looking under the Page Type drop-down, make sure that Message is selected instead of Page.
You can set the title of the messaging to be whatever you like but we suggest to name it something obvious such as Permit Printing from Home or Print from Home.
Setting the Correct Identifier
The Identifier field is important and must be a specific set of text to ensure that the messaging works as intended throughout the system. Make the identifier for your permit printing permitPdf
Creating the Print from Home Content
Make sure that you are physically printing this message out to test and ensure that the layout is being displayed correctly.
Available Permitpdf Shortcodes
Shortcodes allow you to display dynamic content onto a static page. By providing these shortcodes we allow our users to customize their messaging however they would like.
[permitpdf vehicle=all] will show a comma separated list of vehicles up to 3.
[permitpdf vehicle=1] will show the first vehicle in the list. Available numbers include 1, 2, and 3
[permitpdf permit=expiry] the expiry of the permit
To print the permit information you must supply specific shortcodes such as permitpdf user=fullname, see a list below for the available permit print shortcodes that you can use.
